Emerging Professionals and Mentors Celebrated at Open House

Our chapter’s 2022 Emerging Professionals Program was a great success. We celebrate the industry leaders who came together to mentor and guide emerging professionals, as well as those who took the initiative to receive professional development.

This program allows access to guidance for many emerging professionals and has equipped those who’ve attended with useful strategies and tools necessary to excel professionally and personally. 

In 2022, great strides were made in this program and we want to thank and honor those who made it such a success!
